Is your mobile phone always running out of juice in the middle of an important call? Fed up with your iPod battery running out whilst you're sunning yourself on the beach? Or you're trekking through the Himalayas, relying on your tunes to keep you motivated and all of a sudden there's silence and the recharging icon is winking at your from your iPod screen?
Don't fret! The solarmonkey portable solar charger is here and ready to provide you with power - directly from the sun! You won't even have to get off your sun lounger...
The solarmonkey & solarnut can be connected directly to your phone, iPod (it's in the Made for iPodTM program), PDA, PSP and more, enabling you to recharge without the need for batteries or a mains power supply! The solarmonkey works via two solar panels which generates an electric current when exposed to light, which in turn charges your device. (Please Note: The solarmonkey does NOT hold a charge.)
Specially designed to work with the solarmonkey, the included solarnut reserves redundant solar energy so that if a sunny day turns cloudy whilst you're using your solarmonkey, charging of your device is not affected. It will regulate the supply of power to your device, meaning yet another stress-free charge courtesy of Powertraveller!
solarnut can also be used as a stand alone portable emergency charger, providing you with up to a quarter of mobile phone power or at least 15 minutes of talktime. To make the most of your solarnut, recharge it (via solarmonkey) at least once every 2-3 months!
The solarmonkey solar charger now comes complete with a velcro strap, enabling you to attach it to a rucksack - perfect for keeping your gadgets charged whilst you're trekking up a mountain!!
Plus - you can get free play from your iPod - wherever you are! If you've got one of our soundtraveller speakers, you can use the solarmonkey to provide you with power to play your music! Simply plug the solarmonkey into the back of the speaker and away you go! With no need for batteries or mains chargers, the solarmonkey and soundtraveller really are a match made in technology heaven! Make the most of our range of convergent technology - the soundtraveller range and the primate power range are all designed to work and interact with each other - making them absolute travel essentials!
solarmonkey performs best when outside in direct sunlight, ensure the panels are in full sunlight and soak up those rays! If you have one of the larger smartphones (i.e. iPhone 4/3GS, HTC, etc), we recommend that you purchase the powermonkey-eXplorer as the solarmonkey inc.solarnut is not suitable.
